CNN iReport Facebook roundtable Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. ET

You hear so much about kids with autism, but adults on the spectrum have their own struggles, and the workplace can be one of them. After we received two iReports on this topic, we decided to pursue it further.

 


So, on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. ET, the last day of Autism Awareness Month, we will be holding a roundtable chat on CNN’s Facebook page on autism and Asperger’s in the workplace. iReporters and experts will be taking your questions and sharing their experiences in a discussion on this subject and the challenges they’ve seen. We'd also like to hear about your views and experiences as well.


Joining us will be Dave Wellman of Myriad Genetics, who has worked with and managed employees with Asperger's syndrome; Becky Ketts of Nobis Works - which provides job training for those with disabilities and other barriers;  and iReporter Sarah Still, who recently iReported on her personal challenges with Asperger's.

 


We hope to hear from you tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. on CNN’s Facebook and look forward to your contributions to our discussion!

Since no one wants the Boston bomber terrorist, could he be put in the ocean like Bin Lauden was put.

In regards to the IRS debaucle, I believe the IRS is a 'Government sanctioned criminal organization'.

It seems the Republicans are lining up for the media to put their spin on Benghazi, the IRS, and the AP subpoenaed stories and are being given much more coverage than the other side of the stories. They have Fox news for their spin,  CNN does not have to represent their views as well. Include both sides at every interview and let the public make their own evaluations, that is what journalism is about.

It used to be that children with challenges such as Autism were shunned and family shame delegated them to dark corners where no one should have to be. Thankfully with education and social moralization these children are getting the help they need to become functioning people in our society. All children deserved to loved no matter how they come into this world.. We need to step up and fight for all children.
